some neat Halloween ideas from BHG
Guess I need to go back to Dollar Tree for some of those tacky skulls and such, LOL. I've put these in our Halloween Inspiration album to save too.
Thrift-store glasses become centerpiece-ready with a coat of black spray paint. Choose textural goblets for the most detail, set them upside down to spray-paint, and tape a few to preserve the tops. Touch up any edges with a black permanent marker after the goblets dry. Note that after decorating the goblets they are meant for display only. Use sand to raise votives to desired height. Place the goblets on a black tray or a mirror embellished with spray paint. (tip for painting glass...use FLAT paint, or Krylon poly FLAT sealer before painting)
A stack of old books forms the stand in this spooky centerpiece. To make, cut two basic ghost shapes from pages in the middle of a book, leaving the bottoms attached to their pages. Hold up each ghost with a touch of tape. To complete, use a hole punch or marker to make eyes for this haunting centerpiece.
Chalked Skeleton Centerpiece
Spray-paint Halloween props with black chalkboard paint, then outline them with chalk for frightfully aged flair. Fill the cauldron with a decorative bottle.
Silver Skull Centerpiece
For a centerpiece with both spook and glam, spray-paint a plastic skull silver. Use black feathers to create a to-die-for boa around the "head of the table." Place the skull on a black raised stand or footed dish for a lively Halloween decoration.
